Philadelphia dog bite laws

Laws for dog bite liability are uniform throughout Philadelphia and the State of Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania has strong laws that protect the victims of dog bites. A dog bite is a type of tort. A tort is a civil wrong that gives rise to legal liability. Unlike many other torts, Pennsylvania law doesn’t require negligence on the part of the dog owner. Any time a dog bites, the injured victim may bring a claim for compensation even if the owner doesn’t have a reason to believe that the dog would bite.

Does Philadelphia have a “one bite rule” for dog bites?

No, Philadelphia does not have a “one bite rule” for dog bites. A victim of a dog bite in Philadelphia may bring a claim regardless of whether the dog has a history of violence. You may have heard that the law doesn’t allow a victim to claim compensation after a dog bite unless the dog has bitten before. In Philadelphia, like in all of Pennsylvania, that’s not an accurate statement of the law. Instead, you can bring a claim for financial compensation after a dog bite even if the dog has never bitten before.
